8-Year-Old Girl Dies After Falling From Carnival Cruise Ship Deck”

An 8-year-old girl died Saturday after falling from one deck in a cruise ship's interior atrium to a lower deck, officials said.

The girl, whose identity has yet to be released, fell to the lower deck of the ship's interior atrium.

Bob Dorr, a passenger and retired former emergency medical tech, said he was the first person to start CPR on the girl, while a police officer held her neck.

"Our most heartfelt condolences are with the family at this very hard time", the Carnival Cruise Line spokesperson said in a statement. Ignatius Carroll says the distance the girl fell has not been determined, but could have been 25-to-50 feet.

Police (who did not immediately respond to request for comment by BuzzFeed News) are now investigating, though the ship has been cleared to "resume normal operations".

The young girl was taken to a local trauma center and is reported to be in "extremely critical condition", according to the Miami Herald.
